A huge guy with heavy glasses and a drop tuned electric guitar, a woman 10 feet tall, computer beats and synth basses. Post industrial beats, stoner bass loops, metal riffs and german lyrics. Guitars cannot be to loud, drum patterns never to stoical, bass licks never to dark, lyrics never to sealed.

Marco Trovatello – Info


In the second half of the eighties and throughout the nineties, Marco was a bass guitarist  in various indie rock bands. As an occasional synth player and early owner of both a C64 and Atari ST he quickly became  interested in MIDI and electronic music as well. He still believes his music consists, for the most part, of indie-, post-rock and electronic elements. Meanwhile, Marco has  released his second solo album on our label (see releases) plus, in cooperation with Bernd Wilberg, an electronic or respectively electroacoustic album as Schmitz & Niebuhr.

He produced his first sound, when he hit his empty puuding-cup with a spoon. For a while, he left this first attempt as this.
